Now will it be our last? HMMM. I won’t do a lot of chattering on this one because there are quite a few pictures. Let’s get started shall we?
Choose the Patterned Paper you want to use. I chose Girl’s Paperie – Newsprint Stripe… pretty isn’t it!!!
Choose your stamp (April KoM – Fresh Beginnings) and your ink. Of course, stamp on your beautiful paper.
Go about embellishing. Here I colored in Pink Spica, BG93 Green Olive & Clear Spica
Our next step is to attach a piece of acrylic to your patterned paper, in this case I used Tim Holtz fragments. I use glossy accents, I’m sure diamond glaze or something similar will work fine.
The next step is where you can do any number of options but in this case I melted some Pearl UTEE that I just got at a Craft Yard sale for like $1. Go ahead and melt it. (Note: You could start the melting process at the beginning so that it is ready by this time. I’m just mentioning it at this point so you will no where in sequence it will fall).
Now here is where I use my specially manufactured for crafting only bamboo tongs from Pampered Chef to dip my project in the UTEE. You just want to get the edge. You doing a sort of Faux Soldering.
This is what it will look like at this point.
You want to keep doing this until you have covered all 4 sides. Your project will then look like this.
Personally I made mine for little barrettes. And I believe they came out adorable. Final result?
That is the end to our first tutorial. Should we do more?
